The Knicks will reportedly consider trading Kyle O’Quinn if their chances of making the playoffs decrease by the February 8 trade deadline.

According to the New York Post‘s Marc Berman, the Knicks believe that O’Quinn, 27, will opt-out of the final year of his contract this summer.

The Knicks’ interest in trading Kyle O’Quinn at the Feb. 9 trade deadline will rise at the same rate as their chances of making the draft lottery. […]

 

The Knicks are under the impression O’Quinn, a Queens product who is on a modest pact considering his improvement this season, will opt out this summer. […]

 

Unwilling to pay him major bucks with their investment in Enes Kanter and Hernangomez, the Knicks would like to get either a draft pick or a 25-and-under prospect for O’Quinn, especially if they become a playoff long shot by the trade deadline.
